    Hello to everybody from Italy. It's my first post
    I recently picked up an DSL-AC68U and installed merlin. For now the only issued that i encountered is show in the screenshot. I tried searching the forum but i havent found nothing recently. I must say that it worked good in asuswrt fw. Any ideas?

    Which firmware did you install? Merlin doesn't make firmware for DSL- routers. However there is a version by @GNUton here.

    Latest 384.11_2 . Of course i'm aware of both gnuton "fork" and that it's not specific for the DSL but many people have installed without issues. Since it works great i think i'll keep it.so i'm the only one with this issue?

    If you use a none supported firmware on a DSL-router, What do expect? Its not tested against DSL
    Use Gnuton's supported DSL.

    Seems like you are, I can't recall another post similar to your situation. :)

    Like @ColinTaylor above, I too would recommend the GNUton's RMerlin fork. It was created after all for a reason. :)

    If you insist on keeping the firmware you currently have installed, I would recommend a full M&M Config reset to get your router to a good/known state as possible.

    Please see the link in my signature below for more information.

    I think i'll go for gnuton fork then! Is the development the same as merlin or is a real "fork" with it's own updates? It's the only thing that prevents me from using it (cause of my ignorance of course)

    I'll let you decide for yourself if it's 'real' or not. :)

    https://www.snbforums.com/threads/dsl-ac68u-asuswrt-merlin-builds-for-dsl-routers.55985/

    After flashing, the same M&M Config reset is recommended and if you have a spare USB drive to use on the router, the amtm Step-by-Step guide will make sure you get the most of your router too. :)

    Please follow the link in my signature below to both the M&M Config and the amtm Step-by-Step guides. :)
